According to Webster’s dictionary; “A solar eclipse (as seen from the planet Earth) is a type of eclipse that occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and when the Moon fully or partially blocks (“occults”) the Sun.”
On August 21, 2017 there was an eclipse of the sun blocked by the moon. I shall never forget it; because it was my oldest son’s twenty ninth birthday. Thousands of eclipse sunglasses have been purchased so people could view this rare phenomenon.
My friend Riley said he’s going to get in bed and cover up his head. Another friend named Sandy said her husband’s optometrist does not recommend looking at it any way, shape nor form. After all, he is an eye guy. His job is to protect people’s eyes.
I found it interesting that the word occult was used in the definition. I only knew occult to be a false religion, one in which there is an element of truth; however, it leads people away from the “Way, the Truth and the Life.
That’s exactly what an occult does; It shuts off your view or expose to the “Light of the World.” There are so many “almost true” religions; enough so to persuade people into believing the lie of the enemy of their soul. That’s been Satan’s plan all along, to eclipse the One and Only Son of God.
Prayer in Motion:
Lord Jesus, You are the One and Only Savior of the world. You will not be eclipsed nor will Your plans be thwarted by the Devil. I belong to You Jesus. You are for me and not against me both now and always No weapon formed against me shall prosper. In Jesus Name. Amen
